Sunday Sketch and Stamp and a Birthday Card

Hi All!!

Happy Monday!  I have two cards for you today.  The first is my Sunday Sketch and Stamp Card a day late. We had a crazy weekend and stamping was on hold for a bit, but back on schedule now!

So this sketch was created by Ger, cute huh?  On sponsor is my Favorite Things, who generously donated a few cute images for us to play with.  I chose these holiday owls.  I used some My Mind's Eye papers along with pink pirouette and espresso card stock.  I used my MS snowflake border, snowflake and holly leaf punches on this one.  Along with my 3 SU oval punches.  I also embossed the pink circle with my CB snowflakes folder.    Finally I added some ribbon, flowers and lots of stickles!  The sentiment is from SU.
Challenges....
Sweet Stampin...stitching
Allsorts...at least 3 punches

Moving along with the times...Christmas
Cute Card Thursday...Tweet and flutter

Now for the birthday card....
My niece turned two this weekend, part of why we were so busy, and had her turtle party yesterday!  This is the card I created for her.  This absolutely adorable turtle is from MelJen Designs and available at Whimsy stamps.  **Which is up and running after some server trouble last week.  SO head on over and see what's new!**  The sentiment is from Whimsy as well.  The papers are basic grey.  I stitched the edges, added some flowers and a fun polka dot ribbon along with stickles to finish up this card.  I also used my pinking hearts border pinch from SU and my MS branch punch. 
Challenges....
MelJen Challenge...1 ribbon, 2 flowers, 3 brads
Pollycraft...cute and cuddly
